Cornouiller: I . . .
Cornouiller (thinking): I haven’t seen him since . . .
Thorn (flashback): This plan won’t work. You don’t appreciate how dangerous it is!
Cornouiller (flashback): Your objection has been noted.
Mage: Magus! You’re not gonna believe — we’ve got a live one over here!
Cornouiller (present): I beg your pardon, Sir Thorn. Please brief us on the situation . . . We will take your recommendation on how to proceed.
